Cape Byron Management (CBM) had a contract for supplying power to new data centres on an adjacent piece of land. There was intense time pressure to supply, install and commissioning eight (8) transformers and an associated 11 kV switchboard to supply the data centres.  

Our Role: 

Engenuity provided full high voltage system design, associated power system analysis and subsequent on-site commissioning for the site to ensure the safety and operation of the new infrastructure 

Key Outcomes:

Given the tight timeframes and limited infrastructure available, Engenuity was able to apply sound engineering decisions to ensure safety while minimising equipment changes, rework, schedule impacts and associated costs.  

Engenuity was also able to provide project management and technical supervision services as part of on-site commissioning, working with CBM and the installation contractor to ensure safety and compliance.  

The data centre site was successfully commissioned in mid-2022, but has since been decommissioned.
